"There are several really good books on market today,
1. A ready defense by, Josh McDowell
2. Evidence (and More evidence) that demands a verdict by Josh McDowell"

I would not recommend the McDowell books. Many of the arguments he makes
are very low-level and have been objects of derision on various
internet groups for several years. Glenn Morton's comments a few posts
above are very much to the point. I would, however, recommend the ASA
booklet mentioned by Dr. Pun just earlier.

McDowell is a preacher, and a good one, I hear. He is not, however,
a scientist, and some of what he presents appears to be quite incorrect.
